AmCham Ghana, on Thursday, January 19, 2023, hosted executives from United Airlines at the Chamber’s secretariat in Accra.
The meeting was to interact with the Chamber’s Executive Secretary, Simon Madjie, to identify possible avenues for collaboration in advancing the mutual interest of United Airlines and the American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana.
Present at the meeting were Robin Schoug, Regional Sales Manager EMEAI at United Airlines, Luc Geerts, United’s Regional Sales Director of Northern Europe, Oluwatomi Bola-Sadipe, Country Sales Manager Nigeria and Ghana, United Airlines, Geert Lemmen, Country Manager Ghana/ Africa at Brussels Airlines, Matilda Hammond, Sales Account Manager at Brussels Airlines, and Jane Okyere-Aduachie, Membership, External Relations, and Project Manager at AmCham Ghana.
The Chamber, in the past, has collaborated with United to host events, including the launch of the SelectUSA recruitment program.
The Chamber’s Executive Secretary said it would be an honor to continue with the AmCham-United collaborations. “United is an important strategic partner for us, not only in connecting business to business but people to people and expanding the U.S. – Ghana culture.”
“All the connections that matter for human beings are made possible by the travels you offer. Your presence has contributed to advancing the strategic objectives of businesses,” Mr. Madjie added.
United re-launched its services to Ghana in May 2021 and has since provided reliable flights at competitive prices for travelers. The airline recently offered a 5-10% discount on airfares to Ghana for the holiday season.
United has eight hubs, with Chicago–O’Hare being its largest in terms of passengers carried and the number of departures. They are also a founding member of the Star Alliance, the world’s largest airline alliance with a total of 28 member airlines.
